With more than $217 million in funding and 90,000 organizations that believe we’re on to something, we're building performance and error monitoring tools that help companies like Disney, Microsoft, and Atlassian spend less time fixing bugs and more time building products. If you like to selfishly build things that make your digital life better, come help us build the next generation of software monitoring tools.

About the role

The Talent team at Sentry ensures the best product and business are built by the best team. We're looking for an experienced and passionate recruiting leader who can successfully and expertly build a talent and growth strategy to scale our global team.

You will create talent acquisition programs holistically, reinforce our employer brand, continue to attract the best talent, and create a white-glove professional experience. You will utilize data to analyze and iterate on our goals to execute against the long term strategic plans you help to set.

You bring expert opinions and points of view and are not shy about expressing these, and will be accountable for reaching our hiring targets and partnering closely with key business leaders.

You deeply understand the value proposition of Sentry, our strong adoption and appeal to developers across the globe, our year over success in growth, and you will continue adding best-in-class people to our company.

In this role you will

  • Lead a team responsible for evaluating, creating, and implementing operational and process capabilities and improvements across all facets of talent acquisition, talent management, and candidate experience

  • Be accountable to the management and administration of talent tools (such as an ATS); build out and maintain internal documentation on workflows, processes, and procedures

You’ll love this job if you

  • Live to teach, motivate and mentor a growing team of talent specialists
  • Are fierce about driving recruiting design and strategy, some may say, a founder mentality about talent management
  • Appreciate data and metrics, you use that to prioritize business needs and strategy
  • Are deeply invested in the challenges companies face when building and growing diverse teams, you think creatively and are committed to helping solve these challenges
  • Have fact-based opinions and can present arguments to help lead an iterative recruiting model, using data and key insights into the market
  • Can fully own the white glove candidate experience and strive for world-class talent acquisition
  • Have an uncanny ability to build consensus, rally support around common goals, build trust and can present to the Leadership Team with ease


  • 10+ years of progressive talent acquisition experience in a hypergrowth (start-up) scaling culture, from strategy to operational execution
  • Experience creating and developing effective talent management strategies, using and translating data into improvements to those strategies
  • Experience building diverse teams, working with key leadership in understanding business plans and recruiting implications and impact on those plans
  • Experience building and scaling a global workforce, talent acquisition, and growth
  • Experience with an ATS and relevant talent tools and solid knowledge of industry best practices (Greenhouse experience is required)
  • Bonus: Understanding of immigration-related regulations and compliance procedures across North America, EMEA, and APAC
